Careers

Great jobs with great impact.

As Germany’s No 1 platform to connect, buy, sell, or simply give away items, we bring the best of all worlds together: a beloved brand, awesome colleagues and a business model with a societal impact: sustainability.

Imagine a job that's a great deal for you and the planet.

Kleinanzeigen is more than just an online classifieds platform; it's a dynamic ecosystem where your career goals and sustainable values align. We combine cutting-edge technology with a people-centric focus. We enable re-commerce within our community, fostering a circular economy and generating enthusiasm for items already within people's closets.

With over 50 million ads spanning various categories, from children's supplies to electronics to real estate, and more than 36 million users per month, we have the widest reach of all online selling platforms in the country. Originally launched in September 2009 as eBay Kleinanzeigen, we became part of Adevinta, a global classifieds specialist, in June 2021. In May 2023, we rebranded ourselves as Kleinanzeigen, setting the mark for a new era of growth and positive change.

No matter how you've worked in the past or what kind of career path lies behind you, Kleinanzeigen is the place where you can find a job that's a great deal for you and the planet.

Imagine a job where high-tech meets higher purpose.

As a people-centric workplace, we offer you a meaningful career while making a great impact.

Our teams work cross-functionally to enhance our platform with solutions that address our customers' needs. This means that each team contains of members from various functions, such as Product & Tech, UX and Design, Analytics, Marketing, and more.

Additionally, everyone can be part of a functional community to share expertise among peers. Colleagues are also encouraged to voluntarily join Guilds and Clubs, where they can focus on specific areas of interest, such as supporting onboarding, cultivating our culture, promoting diversity, equity and inclusion, facilitating our all-hands meetings, offering mindfulness activities like yoga, and much more. This provides everyone with the opportunity to shape our workplace and our ways of working, engage with colleagues outside of their teams, and implement ideas in a fun, yet still professional, setting.

Imagine a job in a good environment that is good for the environment.

We believe that people work best in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As a diverse community of 360 amazing individuals from 49 different nationalities, we all share a passion for working in a good environment.

A variety of activities, including team events, help us form strong bonds and create lasting memories. Our all-inclusive summer and winter off-site events have achieved legendary status.

We're also enthusiastic about sports and have been participating in events like the Berlin Velocity and the B2Run for many years.

Despite all of this, you might be surprised to know that we have quite the sweet tooth. Almost every week, someone brings cake to the office, and we absolutely love it.

Our commitment to creating a good environment extends beyond the office. We are actively involved in social responsibility projects, such as supporting the Berliner Bahnhofsmission.

Our cultural values

Our culture is unique and is what has made us successful. Learn about our four values and the way we work together, which all colleagues had a part in defining from the bottom up.

  • We succeed, fail and learn together

    No one wins or loses on their own. We are one team. We communicate openly and honestly across hierarchies with trust and respect for each other. We don't point a finger when something goes wrong. Instead we learn from it and improve together.

  • We are the customer

    We love and constantly use our own platform. We talk to our customers and rigorously evaluate how we can get better to make our users happy and build on our purpose.

  • We meet challenges with agility

    We see changes and failures as opportunities to improve and face challenges head-on. We work in a pragmatic, iterative and cross-functional way to be able to react quickly to an evolving world and to our customer's needs.

  • We are united in diversity

    We’re a diverse team where everybody is unique. We live inclusion in everything we do and embrace different ways of thinking, working and living to reach the common goal of making our customers happy.

Imagine a job where CO2 is more important than the CEO.

Sustainability is not just a buzzword for us; it's at the core of our business model. Everything we do aims to „bring the joy of sustainable trade to everyone“. It reflects our dedication to sustainability and its integral role in our daily operations. With that, it goes beyond environmental conservation; it's about environmental and social responsibility.

For that reason, we have started and are supporting different initiatives such as:

Green Sunday: In 2020, we initiated a meaningful annual event, held just before Black Friday, which redefines the concept of a shopping event. Unlike traditional Black Friday and Cyber Monday, our platform celebrates sustainable consumption year-round.

Social Engagement: We actively engage with initiatives like Fridays for Future, Earth Day, and Earth Hour, demonstrating our commitment to global environmental awareness and change. We are dedicated to combating cyber-grooming and supporting the Berliner Bahnhofsmission.

Climate Investment: Together with Admosfy, our marketing communications have achieved carbon neutrality through accredited projects like GoldStandard and Plan Vivo, exemplifying our commitment to mitigating the impact of our activities.

Campus Cleanliness: We maintain a clean and eco-friendly campus, with recycling stations and active participation in an annual campus cleaning event, contributing to a greener environment.

Good to know, we are continuously exploring ways to make our business operations and personal lives more sustainable. Join us in creating a future where environmental responsibility is not just a corporate goal, but a way of life.

Why else choose us? Discover our benefits.

We believe that work is defined by what you do, not where you do it. Our smart working approach, which strongly aligns with our culture of trust and empowerment, offers you the flexibility you desire. There is no fixed number of days you need to work from the office; instead, teams decide which key moments they want to spend together. And with our opportunity to work from anywhere for up to four weeks per year, you can combine remote work with other life activities.

Our people really do come first. Therefore, we offer many benefits to have a great work-life balance. Although families come in all shapes and forms, and we want to enable you to spend precious time with yours, we offer five months of fully paid leave for birth parents and three months for non-birth/adoptive parents.

We believe in growing our people. We offer lots of development opportunities, an education budget, coaching sessions, and slack time for pet projects. Being part of our mother company, Adevinta also gives you global career opportunities.

Our culture is the glue that holds us together. Regular social team activities (online and offline) make it easy to stay connected. While working in the office we enjoy having lunch together, walking around our little pond, or meeting at the gym.

We know that our people are the key to our success. Aside from a competitive salary, we offer a pension scheme, role-dependent incentive plans, relocation support, and more.

Application Process

As said, people come first and so do candidates. We try to respond to your application as quickly as possible.

The next steps vary from role-to-role. But the process generally includes a phone call with a recruiter to get to know you a bit better and to clarify your availability and salary expectations. Of course you will have a video interview with the hiring manager and other team members. Depending on the job category you are applying for, expect a coding challenge or case study.

We also put a high value on culture. This means we evaluate candidates according to specific competencies and behaviours, and think about what they can add to the company culture.

Despite being a German brand for people living in Germany, the team is very international and inclusive. People behave very professionally and it is one of the most non-toxic and transparent working environments I've ever worked in.
